Joni has always been a gifted photographer. She grew up in a family of passionate artists and photographers who inspired her to follow her dreams.
"When I was about 10 years old, I would dress my cat, Rudy, in doll's clothes, put him in a basket and take photos of him for hours until I was pleased with the images." This passion, evident even as a youngster lead Joni to pursue her passion for photography further on into the future.
Joni studied professional photography in New Zealand, then moved to London to work as a photographer and editor for a well known portrait studio in Primrose Hill. Her love for travel has taken her to New York, where she worked for a top fashion photographer, and to Europe, as a travel photographer for a travel company, then returned to New Zealand where she worked for a lifestyle magazine.
Joni has recently moved to Melbourne, Australia to establish her own Photography Business, which specialises in photos and portraits of children, families, weddings and other special events. Each photo is unique and tells a story, capturing every precious moment beautifully. Her years of experience and professionalism are evident throughout the whole process through to the final product. Her vibrant personality, quirkiness and zest for life makes the experience relaxing and enjoyable for all of her clients.
"Joni, my husband and I can not thank you enough! You were absolutely amazing, you have produced some of the most beautiful photos. We are so very grateful and can't express how thankful we are, not only for the amazing photos you took, but of your professionalism from start to finish. We cannot wait to use your services again. - Gabrielle.
